This year less Great Blue Herons set up house. On the other hand the Great Egrets are here early and now have more options for nests.
The near corner of this swamp is filled in the morning with both types of big birds.
Here an early riser posed at the foot of a swamp trail.

I first read the as “Great Egret Robbery”!
It does fit. They will steal each others food, disassemble a neighbors nest for parts, etc. Egrets manners don’t match their looks.
